A chunk of a Boonton slope was ravaged by the Rockaway River during Hurricane Irene and almost a year later, several homes are teetering on the edge. But no one is fixing the problem because the slope is owned by Jersey City.
Residents in Wallington said they received messages Tuesday morning that evacuations would take place. Some people struggled to make sense of flooding and shocked by the pure scale of the damage.
As flood-prone areas of New Jersey began drying out Tuesday, angry residents of flooded areas called again on New Jersey’s leaders to do more to keep their roads and homes dry.
Forecasters said minor to moderate flooding will continue along the Passaic River at Pine Brook and Little Falls and the Rockaway River at Boonton until they begin to recede Tuesday.
